RECYCLE, from page 1A necessary, "Whether you are recycling aluminum cans, tin cans, glass or plas- tic bottles, all items can be mixed together in the new bin." Clements said there were a number of reasons the company decided to make the change. Most reasons were specific to employee safety and health. "This bin is rolled to the truck and the equipment does the lifting, not the em- ployee. It will save employ- ees' backs and help to avoid slips and falls," he said. Another reason for the program change also deals with employee labor; the larger containers don't have to be handled as often as the crate style bins. "Once the new containers are in place we will only pick up recycle materials on the first and third weeks of the month," he added. The last reason, Clements said, was also about encour- aging more members of the community to go green by becoming involved in the re- cycling program. Both CPUD general man- ager Bill Turner and Clements hope that because there is no sorting involved with the larger containers, more households will sign up for the program. Turner said in addition to going greener, the change in recycle storage style would resolve the environmental issue of materials being Waste Management district manager Mike Clements offers a preview of the new recycling bins during the December Chester Public Utility District meeting.
